When the Halloween pumpkins are gone,
And the leaves have all fallen to the ground,
When the air has turned windy and cold,
Then Thanksgiving will soon be around.
Thoughts of loved ones all feasting together,
Pleasant pictures from past times appear
To dwell in each heart and each mind-
Then Thanksgiving is finally here!
The kitchen has scrumptious aromas,
The dining room looks oh, so fine,
Decorations with pilgrims and turkeys,
And now we are ready to dine!
First the napkins are placed on our laps;
Now the prayer for the meal to be blessed,
Then we stuff the good food in our tummies,
And we hope for it all to digest!
The Ice Kingdom finally arrived at the world-famous Queen Mary, in Long Beach, last Saturday. Looking at the video it really looks like it will be great fun for the entire family or even as a date night.
Having used three types of ice (crystal, white & colored), totaling 2 million pounds, to create this magnificent winter wonderland, ice artisans from all over the world have definitely given sunny southern Californians something unique to be overjoyed this holiday season. With Ice Skating, a Fairytale Castle, Santa's Toyland, Penguins, and a Nativity carved out of mammoth blocks of ice, the only visual drawback to this White Christmas may be the final tally printed on your receipt.

And November goes,
With the last red berries
And the first white snows.
With night coming early,
And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket
And frost by the gate.
The fires burn
And the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest
Until next spring.

I was born in the country, but brought up in the big city, with hopes of always maintaining the charm, wit and character of a southern, sophisticated
gentleman. In my goal to live more passionately & purposefully, here are just a few things that I've learned and experienced along the way, making my journey more interesting, and more importantly, easier.
